"The base was junk mail covered with Beryls fabric paper made from old candy wrappers. Inexpensive and a ball to make! So easy to personalize for different friends. And yes, photography ISNT one of my strong points!!"
About me and my connection to fiber art & mixed media
Absorbing all I can with mixed media fiber art, found object art, watercolor and acrylic painting. By day, I work in a little gray cubicle on a computer so I spend my free time evenings and weekends exploring color and texture. I have no formal training except Mrs. Buie's art class in Grade School which I didnt fully appreciate at the time. I dont garden but I plant gorgeous pots of flowers and surround my bird bath and front porch so I can sit with my coffee or a toddy in the midst of the glory and watch cardinals and honey bees.
Thank you for your kind comment Cindy, I took the opportunity to visit you and see that you too are trying your hand at felting, it's my latest love. I love the variety of your photos and the skill you bring to them all
I got your messages and answered on your page yesterday, is it not there?. Yes I got the machine...today I got a chance to finally play for a little while in between housework and making a big pot of soup to hopefully mark the occasion of the area's last snowstorm (yeah right!) I just played with fiber on a piece of recycled wool with no real goal in mind, but I sure had a great time. The Babylock is sweet as sugar!! I love it so far. I cant wait to try lace and regular fabric but I still have some laundry to get done so I will post the photo of my first attempt and put it away for the night.
I've left you a few messages about your embellishing machine and stuff-I love all your bags and am looking forward to making a bag soon. Are you getting my messages? I don't see them on my page or yours. Strange...Mimu
Thanks for the comment Cindy
